Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Selected Vineyards wines are well-loved varieties from select Central Coast vineyards and represent remarkable value. California's Central Coast offers unmatched blending diversity from its multitude of microclimates. Cool region grapes contribute distinctive fresh fruit nuances and warm region grapes add depth of flavor and complexity. highly acclaimed wines take no shortcuts and are easily worth twice their modest price.

2009 Pinot Noir, Selected Vineyards is rich in both color and fragrance. With aromas of rasberry and ripe strawberry, this medium-bodied wine is very food-friendly. Balanced by warm spice accents of cloves and cinnamon, the bright red fruit flavors finish round and smooth.

Suggested Pairings: Lobster Bisque, beet and endive salad, or smoked duck breast.

I really enjoy this wine! I don't know how to pair with foods. I usually drink after I eat. I really love the taste, now that I know how I'm supposed to drink it. I used to drink all wine too cold. So none of them tasted good. I highly recommend this one!!

if you are looking for a pinot noir bottle of wine that won't let you down, given the fact the you spend $9.29 for the world's most difficult wine to make, this is your way to go. It has a clear color, very pinot-noir-like. On the nose, I get the typical pinot noir flavours. Black berries, earthiness or wood-like flavour (whichever makes more sense to you) and a hint of spice. However, this doesn't fully live up to the way it tastes! It is almost unfelt on the midpalate. It doesn't have a lot of character. Sure thing, no tannins (or you may find them if you are a wine expert.) I would recommend this wine to beginners for the sake of expanding palates. But again for a $9.29 pinot noir bottle of wine, this is definitely a steel. I am 87+ on this effort. Happy drinking!

For what you pay for a nice glass of pinot noir in a restaurant, you get a whole bottle of quite enjoyable wine. Not outstanding, but certainly outstanding for the price! We had it with chicken Marsala, and it fit perfectly.

Each sale resulted in a loss of focus, and the brand suffered. In 1992 Eric Wente of Wente Vineyards saved it from the jaws of destruction by assembling a group of eight investors to buy the winery.
